Martin + Osa

Martin + Osa Sale: Dolce Vita Ivory for $30, Havaianas for $7, more

Friday, July 9th, 2010

I talked about some coupons that take further discounts on sale and clearance shoes yesterday, but we have another sale on a sale with even bigger total savings to discuss today.  You may know that Martin + Osa, which is owned by American Eagle Outfitters, is closing and they are continuing their Final Sale by taking steeper markdowns on their merchandise than we saw before.  This includes their selection of women’s shoes and it gets even better when you get a whopping extra 50% off your order automatically at checkout.  The selection of shoes is certainly getting limited at this point, but there’s still some great deals to be had.  Case in point: The Dolce Vita Ivory flat sandal in pewter (pictured above) is marked down from $130 to $59.95, but drops to just $29.98 at checkout.  I checked around and other stores that carry it still have it listed in the $125-ish range, so it’s definitely a bargain.  You can also get Havaianas Slims and other flip flops for $7.48 after discount, plus more styles from brands like Dolce Vita, Schu, Rough Justice and Dulce at super-low prices (none are over $30 after the savings).  Note that all sales are final and shipping adds $7.  The expiration, if any, is unknown.

Update: The sale expires 7/28/10 when the store will be closing its doors.

Martin + Osa Final Sale: Dolce Vita Colette for $126, Havaianas Slim on sale for $17, more

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

If you haven’t heard, Martin + Osa – which is owned by American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. – is closing all stores and its online presence at  As a result, they’ve started taking markdowns on their merchandise today and you can get 30% off any order automatically at checkout, including their selection of women’s shoes.  We’ve seen 30% off sales before from the retailer, but more often than not it applied to sale items only or had exclusions that eliminated certain brands from being discounted.  Not so this time around; however, all sales are final at this point.  The good news is you can get a nice discount on the 37 shoe styles they currently offer from brands like Dolce Vita, Converse, Jeffrey Campbell, Corso Como and more.  I’m liking the Dolce Vita Colette, which is $126 after the discount (originally $180).  This pair is also available at Shopbop for $180, but it’s practically sold out, so this is a good bargain if you’ve been coveting this style.  It’s also notable that they offer Havaianas Slim Flip Flops on sale in several color options for $17, reduced from $24.50 (scroll down to see them).  I’m not sure how long this sale will last, or if the discount will increase at some point, but I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out!

Shoe Buzz: Whitney Port black ankle strap shoes from The City revisited

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

You may still be looking for this sexy black heel worn by Whitney Port on The City, which was first spotted in the season 1 show opener.  As you can tell from my previous posts, I’ve been a little obsessed with finding it too.  However, this pair appeared in segment that was likely filmed at least a year ago, so it’s probably a sold-out style by now.  But, the good news is there are plenty of look-alike pairs, even more so than when season 1 aired.  In celebration of the season 2 of The City, which once again showed this coveted pair, we’re going to take a look at black ankle strap heels that are available now and capture this look:

ALDO Applin for $79.98 at ALDO.  Get free shipping with their VIPOFFER coupon code.



ALDO Streiff for $69.98 at ALDO.  Get free shipping with their VIPOFFER coupon code.



Steve Madden Tayla for $95.96 at Steve Madden.  Get free shipping with their SMFREESHIP coupon code.  You can also get 20% off if your order is over $100 or 25% off $125 or more.


Steven by Steve Madden Bryant on sale for $100 at Zappos with free shipping.



Elizabeth and James Jasmin on sale for $239.20 with free shipping at Zappos.

Matiko Winnie for $148 at Polished Sense.  Get 10% off orders $125 or more at checkout.



If you are still looking for Whitney’s cage shoe, also shown in the show opener, try the Dolce Vita Cher in limited sizes for $152 at 80s Purple or in dark silver at ShoeSteal for $129.60 (also limited sizes).  The similar Dolce Vita Celtic at Zappos is $178 with free shipping.  Update: I found this $22.80 Lattice Platform Bootie at Forever 21, a similar pair that costs much, much less.  There’s also the Colin Stuart Cut-Out Lace Up Bootie at Victoria’s Secret for $65.
